what do you say to people who believe dreads=not washing myth


General Questions

Well my Baby mama uploaded a pic of me and my daughter and I gave her a dreadstache. Couple friends of hers commented that it was unsanitary.Of course this is not the first I have heard such non sense. I explain to people dreads are like rope and that putting soap and water on rope doesn't degrade the rope. Half of the times they believe me and the other half are set in their mythical ways.So what do you say to people who believe this non sense. Dreads are no different than straight hair in the fact that some are clean and others not. Of course Waxers, salan, and uneducated naive people also help keep the myth alive. I know 10 years ago I didn't wash my hair and after about a month I got tired of having grease stains that I just gave up and washed my hair.

Dread Maintenance

I did so in the beginning fortunately my hair is thick and wavy so when I saw the results of the locks which were left alone I knew I had to lay off completely.

Several dready issues!! Help!


Help! Save My Dreads

My Experience in this 3 month journey is that thin dreads will often lock with other locks forming bigger ones. I initially wanted thin ones but now I embrace the process of change. My front left lock is actually 3 combined. I say let it be. If you can not use the headband I agree don't use it. For work I have to have it in a pony tail to look "professional" so far no issues for me

what "method" did I start off witg


Dreading Methods

Yeah, it was that stuff. I more than likely over did it, right now I am leaving it alone. I do like how it is now. Some are short others fat, some round some more flat. My hair is just doing it's thing. I think in the beginning I was just in a hurry which I am sure is common. After reading this forum I am not at all concerned with loose hairs and what not. I could tell I was over doing it.

Dreading Methods

In July I decided to grow dreads when I learned my future career as a drug and alcohol counselor allowed it. Initially it started off with me being lazy and not combing just putting my hair in a pony tail. When I decided to grow dreads I used a "back combing" like method using my fingers to form premature knots. Twisting etc. I quite after a month when I noticed my back hair was actually more knoted than my front hairs which I "back combed" Of course I twisted but not really anymore. I do have ADD so it was more of a habit. In the begining I also formed literal knots(mostly do to my add) in the center. Well now I am natural except for the red dye I used 2 weeks ago.Reading on hear I am sure many won't recommend what I did and in hindsight would probably just stick to natural.I have no regrets my Knott's are from mature but they are definitely Knotts. I really like the out come of the process and enjoy watching the process. Some times I made huge progress in just a week. People even compliment my locks. I was using regular shampoo but since bought dread shampoo(don't remember the name but it's where I found this link) still waiting for it in the mail.
